San Diego came in second this rental season. Despite the rising cost of living and housing, high taxes and the risk of natural disasters, San Diego is still a preferred alternative to other expensive West Coast metros — especially now that hybrid work is on the rise. Plus, as a typically strong job hub, San Diego is already on track to recovery thanks to funding coming in through local and federal emergency programs.
However, similar to other Southern California cities, there weren't enough apartments built here in the last two years to accommodate the growing demand in the metro: This year, it took 26 days for an apartment to be filled, with 29 people competing for a rental in America’s Finest City, twice as many as the national benchmark. And, this rental season, the typical San Diego apartment seeker boasted an average credit score of 671, the highest among the top 10 rental markets.
